Gold vs. silver jewelry

Whether gold or silver jewelry is better has been very controversial. Typically, gold is better for people who have darker skin tones, whereas silver is better for people who have lighter skin tones.

  According to Aurelius Jewelry, “Darker skin tones help you wear any gold type, just not the shades of silver as they might get masked when wearing them.” 

  The general consensus at FHS is that darker skin tones prefer wearing gold because it makes them feel fashionable but not flashy. The difference between someone with lighter and darker skin is that gold can typically make the lighter skinned person look washed out. 

“I feel like if you have warmer tones, you look better with gold jewelry,” FHS junior Jaidyn Balsara said. 

  According to Elin Horgan, the owner of Elin Horgan Jewelry, for fair skin with undertones of pink or blue and cool tones, lighter metals like white gold and silver are a perfect match. The right jewelry color can help enhance one’s natural beauty and showcase a unique sense of style. 

Regardless, lighter skin tones are not limited to silver and darker skin tones are not limited to gold. On lighter skin tones, gold can make the skin appear brighter and makes fair skin stand out in general. On darker skin tones, silver can provide a beautiful contrast. 

Winter is the ideal season for silver and white gold jewelry as the gray weather compliments silver’s cool tones. Gold is more fit for summer since the sun and warmth go with the summer vibes of the season. 

“Gold jewelry should be for the summer and then silver should be for winter,” FHS freshman Hila Pelled said. 

  In the end, it does not matter what people wear as long as they love how it looks and it fits them. Nor does it matter whether people wear one type all year long or wear different types of jewelry throughout the seasons. Their opinion on their jewelry is the most important.
